Your Trusted Physical Therapist About Family Care PT

Family Care Physical Therapy was originally founded in 1995 by Diane Brennan and Karen Panzarella.  Sammy Iraci III assumed ownership of the business in 2008 and by 2010 expanded the practice to two locations across WNY (Williamsville and Buffalo). In 2022, Family Care Physical Therapy merged with Northtown Physical Therapy and now co-owner Ryan Gutt bringing the practice to 3 locations spread out through Western NY.   Family Care PT has been recognized by several insurance companies as a preferred clinic for their members rehabilitation needs.  Family Care PT bases their ideology of physics therapy around human connections/personal touch.  The clinics are kept small to help maintain a family type atmosphere and ensure every patient has personalized rehabilitation compared to larger practices where this art is lost.  Family Care PT is dedicated to designing rehab protocols based on the individual and their specific goals which utilizes constant therapist-patient communication to achieve attainable results.
